All I will say is that I prefer a sealed enclosure. I was always a fan of 10" subs until my 12W6v2. I enjoyed that much more than my 10W0 (obvious reason why) and even my 10W6v2.
I would get a sealed enclosure myself, ported is OK (my second choice). I wouldn't even consider a bandpass box though. They just sound like crap to me.
If you're looking for a lot of bass, get a pair of 12's in a ported enclosure. If you're after SQ, get 1 or 2 10's in a sealed enclosure.
I was always more into SQ rather than how loud I could make it. I have friends who work in a car audio shop and do all custom work (that was enough loud for me...didn't need to do it myself). They have some great looking/sounding cars/trucks. One of the shops trucks had 16 Memphis subs with 8 amps. It was putting out over 10,000 watts. We took it to Denny's one time and I swear the cups on the tables were rattling.
